Govt set for summit on Libya

Talks will address migrant situation too

(ANSA) - Rome, September 4 - The government is set for a summit on the Libya crisis and migrants at around 17:00 Tuesday, government sources said Tuesday.
    All the ministers concerned will take part in the summit, the sources said.
    Premier Giuseppe Conte will preside, they said.
    Militia fighters are moving closer to the UN-backed government in Tripoli and the crisis may well have a knock-on effect on migrants leaving for Italy.
    Deputy Premier Matteo Salvini said Italy must be the protagonist of stabilisation in the Mediterranean.
    He said, referring to France, "the incursions of others who have economic interests must not prevail over the common good which is peace.
    "I, too, am willing to run some risks and soon return to Libya".
